Sometimes people refer to Shaker style meaning shaker cabinet doors and not so much the cabinets themselves. A basic Shaker style door is a five-piece door with a flat panel. One of the main advantages of Shaker cabinets is their durability as they are made of high quality natural wood. They are often left with the natural wood finish, or can be stained too and even painted. White Shaker cabinets are very popular in contemporary kitchens as they provide an airy feeling. Combined with light granite countertops and modern stainless steel appliances the overall result is stunning. Contemporary kitchens designs feature rows of big drawers, which look great with shaker style cabinets.
